PLU Talk - Social Entrepreneurship in the Age of Atrocities

     I am writing to inform you of Dr. Zachary Kaufman¹s upcoming talk at Pacific Lutheran University, entitled Social Entrepreneurship in the Age of Atrocities, on October 8 at 7 PM. The event will take place in the Anderson University Center, Chris Knutzen Hall, and is generously supported by the U.S. Institute of Peace Public Education for Peacebuilding Support initiative.

      Dr. Kaufman will explore the idea of social entrepreneurship and its potential to transform societies in the aftermath of great atrocities. Based on his most recent book, Social Entrepreneurship in the Age of Atrocities: Changing our World, Dr. Kaufman¹s work is especially pertinent as we approach the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide (April 2014) and debate humanitarian and military intervention in Syria.

     Dr. Kaufman is a Fellow at Yale Law School (at both the Orville H.Schell, Jr. Center for Human Rights and the Information Society Project), at Yale University's Genocide Studies Program, and at the Yale School of Management's Program on Social Enterprise. He is also a lecturer in Yale's Department of Political Science and has recently earned affiliation with Harvard Law School's Institute for Global Law and Policy.

The talk is free and open to the public; a reception will follow.
